Saturday (4/12/14) Berger Excavating was on site making the final sanitary sewer repair which could not be completed until the new traffic signals were operational and the temporary traffic signals had been removed.

Last week Berger Excavating was removing temporary sidewalk installed over the winter and starting to clean up the project.  The landscaping subcontractor was also on site completing the remaining sod and mulch.  Also, the concrete subcontractor was on site replacing damaged sidewalk and curb.

This week Berger Excavating is scheduled to begin punch list work, which they anticipate taking a couple of weeks.  Additionally, the electrical subcontractor is scheduling activation of the street lights with ComEd.

On 3/19/14 the electrical contractor returned to the site and began minor work on the traffic signals and street lights.  Due to freezing temperatures some of the equipment was still frozen below the surface.  The contractor installed the traffic signal posts and mast arms during the week of 3/19/14.

 

Last week the contractor was able to start pulling wire through the underground conduits for the traffic signals and installed the traffic signal heads. 

 

This week the contractor is continuing installation of street light and traffic signal wires.  Weather permitting they will start installing street lights late this week or early next week.


The new traffic signals are scheduled to be activated on April 7, 2014.

 

Upon completion of electrical work Berger Excavating will return to the site to complete the final sanitary sewer repair, the concrete contractor will complete the remaining minor concrete items and the landscaper will complete the topsoil and sodding.
